ramps. soon after president obama reacted to the compromise bill. >> under this law, more than 98% of americans and 97% of small businesses will not see their income taxes go up. millions of families will have continued to receive tax credits to help raise their kids and send them to college. companies will continue to receive tax credits for the research they do, the investments they make and the clean energy jobs that they create. and 2 million americans who are out of work but out there looking, pounding the pavement every day, are going to continue to receive unemployment benefits as long as they're actively looking for a job. i am very open to compromise. i agree with democrats and republicans that the aging population and the rising cost of health care makes medicare the biggest contributor to our deficit. i believe we've got to find ways to reform that program without hurting seniors who count on it to survive. and i believe that there's further unnecessary spending in government that we can eliminate. but we can't simply cut our way to prosperity. i will not have another d

in the house so it's got no chance whatsoever of becoming law, end quote. that's what i said back on july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal is i said at that time was that we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster. and the democrats were really serious, they would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house as the constitution requires and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called nate bill is nothing more than a glorified sense of the senate resolution. so let's put that convenient talking point aside from here on out. last night i told the president we'd be happy to look at whatever he proposes but the truth is we're coming up against a hard deadline here and, as i said, this is a conversation we should have had months ago. and republicans aren't about to write a blank check or anything senate democrats put forward just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff. that wouldn't be fair to the american people. that having been said, we'll see what the president has to propose. members on both sides of the aisle will
. [video clip] >> more than 98% of americans and 97% of small businesses under this law will not see their income tax rise. millions of families will continue to receive tax breaks to help raise their kids and send them to college. companies will continue to receive tax credits for research they do and investments they make and the clean energy jobs they create. 2 million americans out of work that are out there looking every day will continue to receive unemployment benefits as long as they are actively looking for job. but i think we all recognize this lot is just one step in the broader effort to strengthen our economy and brought an opportunity for everybody. -- this law. the fact is the deficit is still too high. we are still investing too little in the things that we need for the economy to grow as fast as it should. that is why speaker john boehner and i originally tried to negotiate a larger agreement that would put the country on a path to paying down its debt while also putting americans back to work, rebuilding roads and bridges for, and providing investments in areas like
enshrines, i think, a principle into law that will remain in place as long as i am president. the deficit needs to be reduced in a way that's balanced. everyone pays their fair share. everyone does their part. that's how our economy works best. that's how we grow. >>steve: the good news for the republicans is the president had ran on the theory, okay, in my second term i'm going to raise rates on millionaires and billionaires. and mitt romney is a horrible person. you can't possibly elect him. >>brian: mitt romney is the guy with the car elevator and the dancing horse. >>steve: what this is going to do is this is going to take away from the president because we have raised taxes on the most successful, that particular argument. the republicans stand for this. looming ahead is a gigantic show down overt sequester, gigantic budget cuts. >>brian: two months. >>steve: plus the debt ceiling. the republicans feel they have the upper hand on that. meanwhile, we've got a little montage of some of the tempers flaring and nostrils as well on capitol hill as lawmakers made the sausage known as the c
phased out for more energy-efficient ones. >>> a new law in australia is banning ladies' nights. is it's part of an effort to tackle binge drinking but some bars found a little hole that says if the deal applies to everyone it's okay. so they might be offering drinks to men. >> despite the last-minute deal settled in the u.s. senate last night, the united states has technically fallen off the fiscal cliff as of now. the house has not voted and the president has not signed anything. why couldn't washington have solved this problem earlier? they have had it for over a year. did it have to be pushed to the very last second? i'm joined by debby dingle and ron myer. does it have to be done like this? >> i think all of us would like to see it not done like this, but i think the reality of what the tax increase would be to 100% of americans, i still think we're going to hear a lost static on the house side before you see that vote. it takes coming down to the wire, unfortunately, too much in washington to get the answer to occur. we're only punting. it's going to make march madness a new defi
. >> under this law, more than 98% of americans and 97% of small businesses will not see their income taxes go up. >> reporter: lawmakers completely blew their deadline. they didn't get the grand bargain both parties claimed was their ultimate goal. both democrats and republicans gave themselves credit for getting something done. >> this is a very, very strong first step. >> this is an important one. this is a critical one for the future of the country. >> reporter: there was considerable hand ringing among republicans about a lack of spending cuts. some wanted to add them in, but ultimately there weren't enough votes to get it passed. this fiscal cliff deal, which passed the senate with overwhelming bipartisan support would extend tax cuts for all workers earning less than $400,000 a year, prevent a tax hike on estates valued at less than $5 million and extend unemployment benefits that were set to expire yesterday for some 2 million people. since congress missed the january 1st midnight deadline, technically the country did go over that fiscal cliff. but by passing the compromise deal in

republican supported it. but we passed it. president clinton signed it into law, and guess what happened? the economy took off. unemployment came down. the economy started going. and we were paying down the deficit. we had three straight years or four of surpluses. c.b.o. said if we continued on that way, we would pay off the national debt by 2010. well, then george bush came into office, they looked at all the surpluses out there and said guess what? we've got to take some of that and give it back in tax cuts, and that's what they did. now that's what's ending tonight. that's what ends tonight, are those bush tax cuts. so we go back to the tax system that we had under bill clinton. i ask, what's so bad about that? it worked pretty darned well. the economy was going well. we were paying down the deficit. things were going well under bill clinton, under that tax system, and that's what we'll go back to tomorrow. what's so bad about that? well, what's happened is in the last ten years a lot of people have gotten very rich in this country. very rich. and now they want to protect their wealt
